The journal `Critical Survey' invites proposals for 4,000-6,000 word articles analysing some of the cultural and social dimensions of sport in Britain in the years 1800-1914.

2011 PAMLA Religion and Literature Panel: Suffering and Religious Identity, Scripps College, CA, Proposal deadline 3/25

updated: 
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 - 10:37pm
PAMLA (Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association, 11/5-11/6, 2011

The Literature and Religion panel at 2011 PAMLA Conference (November 5-6, 2011; Scripps College, Claremont, CA) seeks papers that address how questions of faith have shaped literary works and cultural meanings. In particular, it welcomes papers exploring the relationship between suffering and religious identity. Some of the questions we will consider are: how do writers represent the connection between suffering and faith? Can certain experiences of epiphany—i.e. moments of empathic identification with the suffering other—be categorized as inherently transcendent? Do religious and non-religious writers come to terms with human suffering in different ways?

New Formalism and the Popular Religious Novel: Special Session, MLA 2012

What does new formalism bring to the popular religious novel? Marjorie Levinson has suggested that new formalism, at its most sensitive and nuanced, offers a way of re-approaching central questions concerning the work of literature in modernity. It does this, not by rejecting history as a grounding methodological episteme, but by returning, historically, to the different ways literary form has been understood over time.
